To help continue the search for Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, we have created the WISDOM Philosophy Club. Guided by Online Program tutor, Chelsia Van Hierden, this free club meets weekly on Tuesdays from 3-4:30 PM, and is open to student input for reading material.
One of the primary principles behind the goals of the WISDOM Socratic Dialogue Online Program is to encourage and strengthen ongoing conversations among families and friends. For course veterans, we hope that dinner discussion may delve just a little deeper and be just a little more rigorous, and that your art of conversation will include more critical thinking and wit than before.
We see students whose desire for learning continues to develop more intentionally. It is for these students, inclined to keep the conversation going outside of class, that we were inspired to offer the Philosophy Club.
